Four weeks into the NFL season, the standings are beginning to take shape as many of the top teams start to separate themselves from the pack. The only undefeated team left in the league are the Philadelphia Eagles with a 4-0 record, but have they done enough to secure themselves atop our power rankings? Let’s take a look at our top 4 teams.
- Buffalo Bills (3-1)
The Buffalo Bills were able to overcome a 17 point first half deficit to beat the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4, proving the team had the mental fortitude to stay in games after falling behind. After the team’s loss to the Miami Dolphins last week, you’d probably expect frustrations and doubts to set in after going down big against a top team like the Ravens but the Bills were able to put together a methodical comeback to win 23-20.
If the Bills continue to keep their cool in tough positions it looks very likely that they will end the regular season with one of the league’s top records.
- Philadelphia Eagles (4-0)
The Eagles are the Only undefeated team after four weeks and it’s easy to see why. Quarterback Jalen Hurts has been terrific on offense, making sure that the team has put up a minimum of 20 points each of their first 4 games. The only reason the Eagles aren’t in the first position is due to the quality of teams they have faced in the first four weeks. They’ve had one of the weaker schedules to open the season with games against the less than impressive Detroit Lions, Washington Commanders and Minnesota Vikings.
- Kansas City Chiefs (3-1)
The Chiefs were able to bounce back against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4 to pull off a 41-31 win. The offense looked like it was back to full strength, looking unstoppable against a very potent Bucs defense. If Mahomes and the KC offense can keep putting up big numbers, they might be able to carry their team back to the Super Bowl.
- Green Bay Packers (3-1)
While Aaron Rogers and the Packers offense hasn’t been as explosive as they have been in past years, the team has been able to open up to a 3-1 record to start the season. This bodes well for the team, as they begin to find their feet after losing key players this offseason like Devonte Adams and Za’Darius Smith.
Expect the Packers defense to play a bigger role in how the team fairs this year. Rogers and the offense will likely be consistent but not able to put up the massive numbers of years gone by.
